They arc some more like Amrit thirtha, Ganesh thirtha etc. The precincts and the kunds are perfectly tidy and at each there are priests called Upadhyaas stationed to guiding the bathers with rituals. On the banks of these thirthas there are many mini-shrines housing the adorable images of Dattratreya, Vittal, Vinayak etc. Crossing this, the visitors find several shops selling puja materials, like kumkum, haldi etc. Leaving them when proceeded further, the visitors enter the three phased prakara. Here they see vast courtyards with pillared aisles on all sides. The main shrine faces the cast and has four separate mandaps. Siddheswar Mahadev is enshrined in the eastern most part and next to it has a square shaped Sabhamandap with three entrances; and from here alone the visitors avail the darsan of the principal deity. Devotees who make offerings are allowed to go further and they alone can have a close look at the image. Adjacent to this lies the central mandap. The garbha griha is square shaped and is surmounted by a superb stucco sikhar. The architectural design and sculptural adornments attract the devotees. There are many worth-seeing images of several deities adorning the niches in the aisles around the main shrine. The statues of deities like Khandoba, Narasimha, Yami, Lakshmi Narayana beckon attention and adoration. The temple of Matangi Devi, one of the manifestations of Mother Bhavani is situated in the north east corner and this is equally beautiful and visit-worthy. Devotees offer prayers here also with equal fervour.
